ANNUAL REPORT OF THE VICE-PRESIDENT 

FRED. W. EVANS 



February 14, 1925. 
Governor Henry L, Fuqua, Ex-Officio President, Board of Administrators, 
Chanty Hospital of Louisiana, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. 

My dear Governor: 

I know I express the sentiment of the Board of Administrators when 
I say that it is with pride and a sense of great satisfaction to report to you 
the work aecomplrsbed by Charity Hospital during the year. The Superin- 
tendent, Dr. Leake, in his report gives in detail its activities during the 
year and shows very clearly what is needed to bring the hospital up to 
the highest state of efficiency. 

Comparing the work today with that of a few years ago, you will be 
impressed with the enormous increase. It is certain Charity Hospital has 
outgrown its present buildings, most of which are more than seventy-five 
years old. 

Realizing the necessity For expansion, the Board of Administrators has 
undertaken to purchase the square of ground adjacent to the Hospital and 
hounded by Tulane, Claiborne, Gravier and Magnolia Streets. 

Considerable progress has been made in this direction and it is antici- 
pated the acquisition of i his ground will soon be completed It is the 
earnest wish aud hope of this Board that you and your Legislature may 
find ttiL- means to erect the much needed buildings. Under present condi- 
tions, patients greatly in excess of the actual number of beds an- crowded 
into the hospital, which prevents proper care and attention being given. 

The per capita cost is lower than the previous year and still remains 
less than one-half as much as other hospitals throughout the United States. 
This fact demonstrates conclusively the extreme care taken in using the 
money appropriated. 

During April the contract was let for the erection of the new building 
which will cost $2S3,318.17. The money for this building was collected from 
1 to the public in 1923. 

During the year, the bequest of the late Colonel W. G. Vincent, a 
former member of the Board of Administrators, was received, this amounting 
to S30,(KMUX) and to lie applied Innards tin- construction of a Contagious 
Building, 

The legacy of Mrs. Alexins Sinclair McBumey bequeathing the prop- 
erties 1010-18-20 Canal Street and to he used to endow a Tubercular Sani- 
tarium, kiI\ .ilTord great comfort to those unfortunate patients afflicted with 
that disease. The philanthropy of this very generous woman will enable 
the hospital to relieve much suffering. 

The donation of 820,743.73 from Mr. T. H. McCarthy of this city i R 
the genuine and sincere expression of one who appreciates the service this 
hospital is trying to render to the people of this State, This most generous 
git is greatly •appreciated and enabled the hospital in no small wav to 
relieve the suffering of many of lis patients. 



12 CHARITY HOSPITAL-1924 



The generosity and spirit of the New Orleans Elks Lodge No. 30 makes 
it possible to bring cheer into the hospital every Christmas. Last year was 
no exception and we are indebted again to that great Order for the Christ- 
mas celebration given to the little children in Miiliken. A large Christmas 
tree was placed in the rotunda of Millikfcn and a great many toys given 
every single child. In addition to this an excellent program was furnished 
which was thoroughly enjoyed by all. 

It is stated with pleasure and pride that the Hospital again meets 
all requirements of the American College of Surgeons and continues to he 
rated Class A. 

Report also from the President of the Louisiana Nurses Board of 
hxaminers in his animal inspection paid high tribute to the Hospital 
commenting especially on the cleanliness that existed everywhere. 

The Advisory Committee composed of members of the Visiting Staff 
continues its friendly co-operation and the Board appreciates the efforts 
of this Committee in solving the many problems that are confronted during 
the year. *• 

The Visiting Staff has rendered valuable service. - The Hospital is 
fortunate and deems it an honor to have this staff composed of many of 
the most prominent physicians in New Orleans. This makes it possible for 
the patients to receive medical attention equal to any in the country. 

The Sisters have again displayed their loyalty by their devoted and 
untiring attention to our patients, and the Board is appreciative of the 
service rendered. 

We are indebted lo the ladies composing the Charity Hospital Needle- 
work Guild. They have made enormous amounts of surgical dressings and 
other incidentals necessary to the Hospital. Their assistance has been 
invaluable and I take this means of expressing our gratitude for the ere.i 
service which they have rendered. 

The Superintendent, Dr. W. W. Leake, has been in entire harmony with 
the Board and we wish to express our deep appreciation of his efforts It 
was his. untiring work, diplomacy and efficiency more than any other cause 
that accounts for the progress and great appreciation of the Hospital bw »k» 
community. 

The records of the institution have been kept perfectly. The business 
office has been run in a courteous and efficient manner, for which we 
indebted to our Secretary-Treasurer, Mr. Fred. W. Matthews. 

During the year it was the misfortune of Charity Hospital to lose hv 
death the valued service of Mr. Terence Smith, a member of the Board 
He was untiring in his efforts to serve and in his death the Hospital W 
a true and earnest friend. 

In conclusion it becomes my privilege and pleasure to express my aot>i 
ciation to each and every member of the Board of Administrators who 
earnestly and devotedly gave his time and whose friendly co-operation ra- 
it possible for the Hospital to be successfully administered. 

Yours respectfully, 

F. W. EVANS, 

V ice- President, Board of Administrators

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT 13 



SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT 



New Orleans, La., February 16, L92S 

To the Honorable Board of Administrators, Charity Hospital. New Orleans, 
Louisiana, 

Gentlemen: 

Charity Hospital today enjoys an enviable place among the hospitals 
of this country. At no time during its long and useful existence has it 
served so many patients, or rendered more efficient service than during the 
year just ended. A study of the accompanying statistical report will show- 
its enormous growth during the past four years and in some instances the 
amount of work has actually doubled. 

Continued harmony and co-operation are responsible for this condition, 
which provides the Hospital a better field of usefulness in earing for the 
indigent sick and injured of the State. 

While it is to be admitted the Hospital is doing a great work and has 
reached a high state of efficiency, let us not be unmindful of the fact that 
there is yet much to lie done to give the patient the best possible service. 
A hospital is as good as the service it renders its patients. 

Each year there has been pointed out the necessity of having a larger 
nurses' home. It is impossible to render the requisite service to the 
patients with the now inadequate number of nurses. The number of 
patients assigned to each nurse is out of proportion, and it is certain that 
without additional nurses the patients cannot be properly cared for. 

Internes are necessary to a hospital. Without them the hospital could 
not function. The present interne quarters are sorely inadequate. Not 
only by not being large enough, but also the physical condition of the 
buiiding is such as to make it inn 10 give the necessary comfort to 

those who devote so much time to the welfare of the patients. These old 
quarters are obsolete and should no longer be used. A modern interne home 
should be built. This would redound to the benefit of the patient by 
inspiring the internes to a greater work 

You are familiar with the great number of patients treated during the 
year and know the great increase in the daily average treated. Analyzing 
this condition, we find that often there are considerably more patients in 
the Hospital than actual number of beds. As many as three hundred 
patients doubled in one hundred and fifty beds, and in the colored children's 
department as many us three in one bed. 

It has been the boast of Charity Hospital that any indigent Louisi- 
;iui:in applying at its door would be admitted. A noble sentiment and one 
that we hope might continue. Some few patients have been denied admit- 
tance temporarily during the year, for the physical condition prevented 
three adults from occupying a single bed. The legislature should lie made 
cognizant of this fact, and either additional buildings should be given or the 
administration should be given the authority to deny admittance in excess 
of beds unless the condition be one of emergency. 

Plans and specifications have been made for additions, and all that is 
necessary is sufficient appropriation. Appeal to the last legislature was 
given due consideration and an apparent increase was given for maintenance 
but little appropriated for new buildings. The increase in patients more 
than made up for the increase of money, and the per capita cost for the 



14 CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1924 



year 1924 shows actual decrease both in Outdoor and Indoor Departments 
The per capita cost of 81.51 for inside patients is considerably lower than 
any hospital in the United States, where statistics have been available 
This very low figure would seem to indicate that we have not sufficient 
funds to render all necessary service to the patients. This figure, though 
should be especially gratifying to you, as it suggests the money appropriated 
has been judiciously and carefully expended. 

The purchase of radium and of all betterments, with the exception of a 
few additions amounting to approximately $20,000.00, have been included 
in the per capita cost. 

On June 2nd, test piles were driven for the new building, the result 
of money collected from the appeal fund. Certain delays have been experj 
enced in the erection of this building, fun it is hoped that it will be ready 
to receive patients by October 1st. When completed this building will 
have a basement and five stories, two wards to the storv, and fifteen beds 
to the ward. This will ultimately increase the bed capacity by one him" 
dred dnd fifty beds, but as a temporary measure the fo'urih and fifth 
floors will be used to accommodate nurses. This arrangement has been 
an absolute necessity, but in no way should be considered a rented v for thr- 
requested increased space for nurses. It is only a temporary measure and 
even, if permanent, would in no way suffice. Neither will the completion 
of this building accommodate the increased number of patients. 

The Legislature should be urged to give enough money to erect th<- 
SUeo^oO pronosed hospital planned. This unit is estimated to cost 

When the building now under construction will have been completed 
it is recommended on account of its location that it be used exclusivclv for 
white medical cases-male and female. It is also recommended n, 
Delgado be used wclttshrery for white surgical women, and the M a ? n

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT 



The present telephone switchboard is not large enough to efficiently 
e-are for the hospital business. The telephone company was i i-qucsied to 
make a complete survey of the entire telephone system in the Hospital, 
including the switchboard and send in its recommendations for a l> 
service. This has been clone and a formal report submitted. This report 
is at present being given detailed study and consideration. 

The Howard Street entrance has heen greatly enlarged. 
entrance and exit there now. This arrangement causes less congestion and 
removes a former source of danger. There was also installed a watchman's 
house, and this entrance is used by employees. All employees are given 
a number and they arc required to check in and out of the Hospital. 

The work of the Engineering Department, under the able direction of 
its Chief Engineer, has made great progress. This includes also the work 
done by the carpenters and painters. The physical condition of the Hospital 
has probably never been better than it is today. Space will not permit 
giving in detail the many improvements during the year, but briefly some 
i he outstanding ones are as follows: 

The completion of the Record Room. This room now is so arranged 
that in an incredibly short space of time any record may be produced, 
provided correct information is given as to name or lime of admission. It 
umated that this room will care for the records until the year lit hi. 
A few steel cabinets were purchased, but with this exception the entire 
room was made by the force at the Hospital. It was customary to file 
the index cards according to years, hut this has been changed to one com- 
plete index and used as an active file. 

The high state of efficiency in the Record Room is due to the untiring 
efforts of the Registrar, Dr, G. Farrar Paltmi. 

A water softener has bees installed, One unit giving 4,800 gallons per 
hour and used for the boilers and hot water throughout the buildings, and 
the other unf\ with a capacity of 3,400 gallons per hour for use in the 
laundry, with Moth hot and cold water. The installation of this improve- 
ment has been a big help and will amount to considerable saving. It is 
no longer necessary to use a boiler scale solvent, uur will it be necessary 
to change the hot water line pipes. A big saving of soap and soda is 
made in the laundry and the clothes come out much brighter and cleaner. 
The laundry is equipped now to do excellent work. 

A new dressing room for women was built in the old site formerly used 
for one of the hot water heaters. This improvement was greatly needed 
and gives a pleasant appearance to the old site which was quite an eye 
sore. 

The back porch near the drug store was enclosed and is used as a 
storeroom for drugs. This makes it very convenient and prevents the 
druggist from making daily trips to the warehouse. 

A sterilizing room was also made in a portion of this enclosure. 

The nurses signal system has been completed, with the exception of the 
Colored Female Building. Ii was thought well to postpone the installation 
here, for should the new unit of the Hospital be authorized, I his would 
be first budding demolished, 

A new office was made (or the ?isters, extending from the old office

from the cramped quarters that they were formerly forced to use.

employees a home-like and comfortable place to live in. Formerly they 
were over the warehouse where it was terribly crowded and not very 



sanitary 



In removing these employees from the warehouse it made that space 
available for storeroom which was badly needed. A small comer of this is 
used for the printing shop. Downstairs the buyer's office was enclosed and 
renovated and made an attractive place to carry on his duties. 

, A vault was made in the Main Hall for use of the Secretary-Treasurer 
and a new vault built in the warehouse to rile X-Ray films. 

It was necessary to rewire entirely the Delgado Building. New wires 
carrying 220 volts, 30 ampere direct curreul. have heen placed on each floor 
of the Main Building. White Female Building, Delgado and Colored Female 
Building for use of the portable X-Ray. All this work has been approved 
by the Louisiana Fire Prevention Bureau. 

Water conductor pipes, 18 in number, have been replaced in the MillikM, 
Building. " 

The Sisters' dining room was enlarged and renovated. 

The three rear rooms of the Miles Amphitheatre were replastered and « 
special size, which has been made at the Hospital, applied. This size nr/ 
vents the peeling of paint, and should be a source of much economy to th. 
Hospital, as much expense has been caused by this condition. 

The lights in the Main Hal] were changed, which gives that hill 
most imposing appearance and has been very favorably commented on

gratitude for the loyal and conscientious support given him. Members of 
the surgical staff have done excellent work, especially in the use of local 
anaesthesia for major surgical operations. 

Each year the Hospital has been fortunate in securing an excellent 
interne corps. It is probably conservative to say that at no time during 
the existence of the Hospital has the present interne corps been excelled. 
The young men who are at present assigned, are efficient, courteous and 
loyal to the institution. 

It is still a fact that there are not enough graduates from Class A 
medical schools to supply the hospitals with internes. This Hospital has 
been fortunate in having more than one hundred and fifty applications 
from twenty-three Class A colleges for the year beginning July 1, 1925. 
This should lie gratifying, for it clearly demonstrate* what colleges through- 
out the United States think of Charity Hospital. Applications for internes 
were received until January 15th. All internes have been selected and have 
been signed up for the year commencing July I, 1925. 

The Hospital is indebted to the Sisters for their loyal support and the 
excellent work done by them during the year. Their service, measured in 
dollars and cents, would amount to a considerable sum 

The nurses, working under a hardship on account of insufficient num- 
bers, have rendered excellent service. Often they have been called upon to 
attend a great many more patients than is usual. They have responded to 
the extra duty without complaint, for which the Hospital is duly ap- 
preciative. 

The Pathological Department under its new director has given universal 
satisfaction to all departments of the Hospital. The work has nearly 
doubled the amount done the previous year. 

You will recall that a year ago authority was given to dis c onti n ue the 
manufacture of anti-tetanic and anti-diphtheritic sera and to purchase same 
on open market. It was estimated this would possibly cost $20,000.00. The 
total cost of this sera for ten months beginning March 1, 1924, was 
J5.546.46. When the cost of animals, animal feed and attendants is t.iken 
from this amount you will see the sera was purchased at a very small cost. 

It is interesting to note that during December, 15)23, and January, 1924, 
there were treated one hundred and forty-four blank cartridge wounds. 
During that period, twenty-one cases of tetanus were admitted to the Hos- 
pital. Of this number seventeen died and four recovered. Compared with 
the period of December, 1924, and January, 1925, there were one hundred 
and fifty-five Mich cases treated. Four cases of tetanus were admitted, two 
died and two recovered. Of the two who died, one was a woman who 
refused serum at another hospital and the other, a boy who had had no 
serum at all. These figures are not given to prove any comparison, but 
they are certainly strongly suggestive that the serum now used is highly 
potent. 

The X-Ray Department under its same Director has done a volumiimu-. 
amount of work and has been of inestimable assistance to the Visiting 
Staff in aiding in the diagnosis of certain cases. The beauty of the display - 
room is probably unsurpassed by any hospital in the United States. 

The appointment of a Radiologist has been of especial value to the 
Hospital, and the 2G0 milligrams of radium which was purchased last year . 
has apparently heen ample for use for those patients requiring it. 

The Physiotherapy Department continues to be popular, and is render- 
ing considerable benefit to many patients, especially those who have been 
afflicted with chronic joint diseases. 

The Social Service Department renders a useful service to the Hospital. 
The detailed report from its director outlines its activities during the year. 



18 CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1924 

The Department or Dietetics under its present efficient directress con- 
tinues its important function of supplying special diet to those patients 
who are in need of same. 

On July 14, 1924, Sister Mary Vincent was called to her reward She 
had served Charity for more than fifty years, and in her death the Hos 
pital lost one of its most faithful servants. Her one thought was for the 
poor, and her many acts of charity and kindness will never be forgotten 

The Hospital also lost by death, Dr. Carl Tittle and Dr Harold T 
Battalora, two of its most promising internes. The untimely and unev" 
pected death of these young men was a shock to all and heartfelt sympathy 
of the Hospital is extended to their families. " 

Miss Stephanie Bole, one of the junior nurses was also claimed bv 
death Her loss is keenly felt and the Hospital extends sympathy to her 
family m their great bereavement. " 

S k„ ^° r ? ° c! in ^ , this r ! p0rt ' il l>ecom « a pleasure to add a few words 
about Sister Stanislaus, that wonderful woman, so capable of self-denial and 
sacrifice. Her sole thought is Charity Hospital and the care of those nnfor 
tonai,., who are placed m our care. Her efforts are untiring and she L 
ever ready to carry out the suggestions which seem to give the patients 
better attention or better comfort. This Hospital is indeed fortunate 'a 
having one so capable and so loyal. Her co-operation has in no small J" 
been responsible for much of the success already attained 5 

The same friendly CO-operation has been given bv the Sccretarv 
Treasurer. 1 he Superintendent is especially appreciative of this « , ^s

Within His infinite plan and wisdom which passes human understand- 
ing, God has taken from our midst our loyal friend and zealous co-worker 

TERENCE SMITH, 
JUNE 13, 1924, 

and in his passing grievous loss has been sustained, not only l>y (hose to 
whom he was bound by the closer ties of family affection, but by those who 
were linked to him by the bonds of sincere friendship and who were privi- 
leged to work side by side with him in the interests and welfare of Charity 
Hospital. 

His co-workers, the members of the Board of Administrators of the 
Charity Hospital, wish to express their sense of loss at his passing and their 
sympathy for his family, who need the solace of friendship in the hour of 
sorrow which has come to them. 

In resolving to inscribe those words on the minutes of the Board ,,i" 
Administrators and to send a record of them to his family, they wish to 
express the respect and honor they will always feel for the departed, for his 
loyalty to the friendships which he inspired, and for the unselfish servi cc he 
found time to render amid the heavy exactions of his own profession aiK j 
pursuit. 



CHARITY HOSPITAL- 192 1 41 



WHEREAS, God, in His infinite wisdom, has called from this earth 

MARY A. HORGAN 
I SISTER MARY VINCENT I 

BE IT RESOLVED, That the Board of Administrators, realizing the 
distinct loss to the Hospital, and appreciating the long and faithful service 
rendered, wishes to express to the Sisters of Charity its sympathy for the 
passing of this noble soul, 

lu her death the Hospital has lost one whose place can never be filled. 
At the tender age of seventeen, she was assigned to duty in Charity Hos- 
pital and served continuously for more than fifty years, until called by Him 
to her reward [or her devotion and many acts of kindness to the poor. 
Her duty was well performed. No one did more for the Hospital during 
its struggling years than this little woman of frail stature, whose kindly 
smile never failed to give strength and encouragement to those who were in 
need. 

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, That this tribute to her memory be 
inscribed on the minutes of the Board of Administrators, on a page set 
apart for that purpose, and a copy sent to the Sisters of Charity.

RI-i'ORT OF THE HAVFEVER AND ASTHMA CLINIC 47 

REPORT OF THE HAYFEVER AND ASTHMA 

CLINIC 



IMMUNIZING POLLEN GROUPS 

Hayfever and seasonal aslhraas is due in the protein of many pollens, 
differing not only in various parts of the country, but even in the same 
locality. As it would he impossible to immunize patients against each of the 
individual pollens, we have selected four groups into which the majority of 
these pollens may he segregated, viz.: Gramiueae. Atnhrosiaceaae, Cheno- 
podiaceae, and Artemisia. As the Artemisias arc not found in this section, it 
reduces the number to the remaining three groups. The Scheppegrell system 
of classification has been used in the diagnosis and treatment of hayfever in 
the clinic of this Department with the following results: Cures, l"> per cent; 
improvements, 40 per cent; and no improvement, IS per cent. 

Several papers having appeared recently in the medical journals criti- 
cizing this classification, a series of tests was conducted in order to decide 
tins question, as it has an important bearing in the immunising treat! 
In the case of the Gramineae, it was claimed that the Bermuda does not 
a reaction similar to the timothy, and 100 cases of grass pollen sensi- 
tivity were accordingly tested. 

In 89 of these cases, the difference in the diagnostic test was too small 
to have any bearing on the immunizing treatment. In ii cases there was 
a marked difference showing about IS per cent of sensitivity to timothy and 
70 per cent to Bermuda; and in 5 cases there was a material difference show- 
ing about 3,i and 70 per cent, respectively; the sensitivity in the 11 cases 

greater for the Bermuda In no case in which the patient was 
tivc to the timothy was there complete absence to that of the .Bermuda. 
The inference from these tests is that in SO per cent of vernal hayfevcr the 
present system of immunizing is effective. In the 11 remaining cases the 
treatment should be more specialized to the incriminating pollen. 

In the Ambrosiaceaae group, which is the more important one in the 
United States generally, 300 patients were tested. Of these, in 246, or 82 
per cent, the difference of sensitivity between the common ami giant rag- 
weeds was insignificant. In 21 cases, or 7 per cent, there was, howevei 
important difference indicated as follows: 

5 cases 60' s sensitivity to common ragweed, 10% to giant ragweed. 

1 « 70% « " " « 20'; *' 

2 " 80% " " " " -'i:'r " 
._, „ ,q% .. ,. .- .. M( , ; .. 

Of these cases, 19 showed a greater sensitivity to the common ragweed, 
and 2 to the giant ragweed. 

In addition to these, there were 33 cases, or 11 per cent, that showed a 
material difference in the degree of sensitivity, as follows: 

2 cases 40% sensitivity to common ragweed, 20'/< to giant ragweed.

These tests indicate that in about 98 per cent of the fall cases, the 
immunizing with the common ragweed, as practiced in the clinic, is the 
logical method, and the remaining cases should be treated with the giant 
ragweed. 

TREE POLLEN HAYFEVER 

On a number of occasions, we have received complaints regarding the 
Ligustmm as a cause of hayfevcr. As the pollen of this tree is rarely 
found on our pollen test plates, its relation to hayfever was considered 
negligible. 

These complaints became so insistent, however, that last year a series 
of intensive tests was instituted in this Department in order to decide this 
question. In all cases of complaints against the ligustrum, and in cases 
of hayfever and asthma generally in which the attacks or their aggravation 
synchronized with the pollinating period of the ligustrum, our pollen test 
plates were exposed at the residence of the patient. In S7 per cent of these 
cases the plates showed the presence of large numbers of the ligustrum 

1 Hi] If 1 1 

These patients were then tested in order to determine their sensitivity 
to the ngustrun pollen, and practically all showed a positive reaction Most 
mU«1 ?h£ Th™ b sc,lsi tive to other pollens, but the clinical h,s„,rv 
proved thai their suffering was greatly increased by the pollen of the

REPORT OF DIRECTRESS OF NURSES 



REPORT OF DIRECTRESS OF NURSES 



To the Board of Administrators of the Charily Hospital of Louisiana 
Gentlem, 

Standing at the threshold of another year, we are invited to review the 
work and achievements of our School of Nursing during the past year. 

The course of instruction has been improved by the introduction o 
Preliminary Period of four months. During this intensive course of study 
the student is trained in the basic sciences and in elementary nursing pro- 
cedures with appropriate ward practice, but without regular ward service. 
Two full-time, trained instructors have been secured and an efficient secre- 
tary added to the School Staff. 

A more comprehensive record system has been introduced into the 
>1 office. This system is a modification of the New York Series 
Training School forms. 

The entrance requirement has been raised to two years' High .School. 

Since many of our students are li 10] graduates, we hope the day is 

not far distant when the standard will I to a four years' High 

■1. It is the experience in every other field of education that the way 

to attract students is to raise standards, not to lower them. 

With a High School education as a foundation and an intensive course 
of study during the Preliminary Period, we are assured that the period of 
training may be safely abridged from the present standard of three years 
to twenty-eight months. 

Improvements have been made in the Demonstration Room by the 
addition of several beds, bedside ladles and chairs used for the Preliminary 
instruction of Student Nurses, A cabinet was made and equipped with all 
necessary material for demonstrating cursing procedures. We still need 
adequate laboratory equipment for instruction in Chemistry. 

The Nurses' Parlors were made more attractive by the' addition of new 
light fixtures, a parlor lamp, new rugs and a new piano. The entt 
alcove was also provided with a new lamp and rug. A large mirror was 
purchased for the entrance. 

It is regarded as fundamental that the hours of duty for the student 
nurse, including ward worlc and classroom periods, should not exceed forty- 
eight hours. With the present student body it is impossible to arrange the 
hours of duty in accordance with the eight-hour schedule, and at the same 
time supply the needs of the paliem. We are convinced that long hours 
of work arc incompatible, either with educational attainment, or with the 
maintenance of health. 

Being in a field so rich in experience, and in an environment so full 
of opportunity, the possibilities for affiliation seem very encouraging. The 
steadily increasing demand for service is quite beyond our power to meet 
at present. With this in view definite affiliations with other schools might 
be established. Such agreements between Hospitals would necessarily pro- 
vide better nursing service within our own Institution, and give a more 
rounded-out training to smaller schools. The fact that out School has been 
in existence over thirty years, and has developed to be the largest of the 
South, should make it a leader in introducing reforms that count for 
progress. 

Progress has been made in face of innumerable handicaps. It can only 
continue by a (rank facing of the truth Here it suffices to reiterate, with 
all possible emphasis, that the crowded condition of the Nurses' Home 
referred to in detail in the last report, still exists. Five beds have been 
added to Nurses' Rooms in the Milliken Memorial

CHARITY HOSPITAL— 1924 



Wc regret to report that one death from pneumonia, several cases ot 
diphtheria, and many cases of tonsilitis have been treated among the 

nui>< 

In conclusion, we wish to lhank I lit- Hoard of Administrators for their 
admirable support. Special thanks are due to Doctor Leake for his wise 
counsel concerning School problems, and to the House Officers fur their 
prompt attention to the Student Nurses during illness. Words cannot 
express our appreciation for the generous response of our Staff of Lecturers 
id the increased number of lectures. Many I hanks are due the School 
Faculty for their loyally and splendid assista;

The past year has been on the whole uneventful. Our efforts have 
been mainly spent in Lrying to bring about a more perfect organiiatio 

be of as much help as possible to our Visiting Staff who meet the 
increased demands which the extraordinary growth in the Out-Patient De- 
partment has brought about: In 1921 our daily average was 361; in 1922, 
-i 1923, 493; and in 1924, as shown above, 613, almost doubling in four 
years. The highest daily average during the year was reached in the 
month of July, 726. The highest attendance in one day was recorded in 
August, 1.01G; nor was the usual decline in attendance during the wintei 
months, especially around the holidays, so great as in previous years. As 
convincing as these figures may he, we think it is difficult for any except 
a Clinic Staff to appreciate the tremendous amount of work, the arduous 
physical tax and heavy responsibilities which these tigures indicate, Happily 
in some hi" the departments, especially in the Medical Clinics, the staffs 
have been increased, making possible more thorough individual attention to 
our numerous patients. We wish also to acknowledge with appreciation that 
all instruments and new equipment requested by the Visiting Staff were pro- 
viditl, which greatly facilitated the work and enlarged the scope of 
icnts. 

The highest number of admissions were into the Surgical Clinics, with 

the total number of visits reaching 51,814, an increase over last year of 

The number of minor operations in these clinics, 2,762, and the 



CHARITY HOSPITAL -1924 



number of dressings done, which were approximately as many as were the 
total visits, 51,814, convey an idea of the valuable public service these 
clinics are rendering. 

The Ear, Nose and Throat Clinic leads all individual clinics in num- 
bers, 5,603 admissions; total visits, 15,086, a gain of 2,679. This Clinic 
referred to the Hospital fur operations 1,7(1,"), which slm uidine 

increase in operations. 

The live Clinic admitted 2,860 new patients; total visits were 14 05^ 
referring to the Hospital for operations 131 patients. 

The Genito-Urinary for men and the Salvarsan Clinic continues to huve 
second largest attendance, 3,362 admissions, with total number of visits 
reaching 25,085, an increase in total visits ol 1,323 This gain is more 
notable when we cal! attention to the fact this Clinic lost in 1923 r,r,7 visits 
in comparison with 1922. 

The following statistics will show the large amount of work done in

REPORT OF SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 



SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

January 23, 1925. 
Dr. W'm. W, Leake, Superintendent, Charity Hospital. 

My dear Dr. Leake: 

The progress of the Social Service Department in 1924 is featured, not 
in big headlines, hut by a steadily increasing growth which signifies use- 
fulness to the individual, the physician, the Hospital and the community. 

The policy of the Department has been continued along the same lines 
as in the previous year. 

The Staff, to which there has been no addition, consists of the director, 
5 case workers. 1 full-time clerical assistant aid 1 part-time clerical 
assistant. 

Splendid work has been accomplished in families where continued medi- 
cal and social treatment is necessary, especially in the tubercular, syphilitic 
and neurotic groups, and much dependence is placed upon the co-operation 
of tin- affiliating agencies for economic adjustment and relief, which is a 
most essential background for effective medical social service, 

The Department has been instrumental in securing many orthopedic 
appliances for patients, without which the maximum benefit of treatment 
could not have been received. Transportation has been procured for 
patients who without the Department's assistance would be turned adrift, 
helpless, in the city 

Three volunteer workers have given part-time service in the pediatric 
and eye clinic in follow-up work. 

An outstanding problem confronting the Department is the greater 
realization of the responsibility and necessity of tin parishes to furnish the 
return railroad fart for legal residents who conic to tin- Hospital without 
means of getting home, and also to provide .sustenance for the patients of 
the Out-Patient Department whose diseases make them undesirable in insti- 
tutions where ordinarily they could receive temporary shelter. 

The problem of placing the feebleminded boy, the idiot child, the 
ptic, the patients with incurable cancer and trachoma is also out- 
standing. A limited provision for permanent placing of the feebleminded 
boy is made by the community, but it offers no similar institutionalization 
for the others mentioned. 

Funds an- greatly needed to facilitate the prompt securing of orthopedic 
appliances, etc., necessary to expedite the patient's rehabilitation and we 
trust that donations from philanthropic sources might be forthcoming. 

Through the same wished-for channels, an available fund for additional 
workers might be secured. 

We are deeply grateful to the many friends and agencies who have 
contributed in various ways. 

We arc also cognizant of our indebtedness to the Goard of Adminis- 
trators, the Superintendent, the Physicians, the Sisters, the Nurses, the 
Clinical Secretary and all attaches of the Hospital, without whose co- 
operation we could not function. 

We regret space does not permit further detail concerning the Depart- 
ment's activities and results, but the statistical report submitted, we hope 
will be partly illuminating. 

Respectfully, 

LAURA BACHMAN, 

Director Social Service.

.mil should the said widow, as owner of the remainder of. the said house, 
wish to acquire tin- said lower story, the said Corporation is hereby 
authorized to sell her the same, on such terms us they will think most

be a sufficient title of property to the said widows, her heirs, executors and 
administrators, under the warranty of the territory. 

Sec- 4. And be it further enacted, That the monies arising from the 
said sale, or so much thereof as may he necessary, shall by the said Cor-
